The Nigerian Army on Friday paraded one Prince Onyemauche who has been impersonating an army Colonel to carry out his nefarious activities under the guise that he is an officer of the Service.

This is coming barely three days after the Nigerian Navy declared an impostor, “Captain Olugboyega Olubiyi Ayokunle”, who collected bribe from unsuspecting members of the public as a Senior Naval Officer, wanted for impersonation.

Parading Onyemauche on Friday in Abuja, the Director of Army Public Relations (DAPR), Col. Sani Usman, said the suspect was driving a grey-coloured Toyota Tacoma Pick-up van with registration number LAGOS LSD 05 BM at the time of his arrest.

Usman said  Onyemuche  was arrested alongside S/Sgt. Jacob Phillip with service number 79NA/19278 on February 17, 2016 along Wazobia Mitir Park, Gwagwalada, Abuja, about 12:30 am, by the troops of176 Special Forces Guards Battalion.

He said: “Mr. Prince Onyemauche had earlier escaped check from Abaji Military check-point where he claimed to be a Colonel in the Nigerian Army. Following their arrest, both suspects were moved to Gwagwalada Barracks where a search was conducted on the Toyota Tacoma van in which they were travelling.”
